Desert Cruiser: A lot of today's plug-ins are 32 bit architecture and won't work with a 64 bit program, so Corel's gives you options :
64-bit and 32-bit installation options
When you install the application, you have the option of installing the
64-bit version, the 32-bit version, or both versions. Which version
should you choose? It really depends on your computer system and the
plug-ins and other devices you use. If you have a 64-bit operating
system, 4 or more GB of RAM, and lots of free disk space (need more
than 700 MB free), then the most flexible option is toinstall the 64-bit
and 32-bit versions. This will let you use any 32-bit plug-ins or other
32-bit compatible software with the 32-bit version of Corel PaintShop
Pro, but still work with the 64-bit version of the application to take
advantage of 6 or more GB RAM and other 64-bit optimized features

No mauritsvw they do not cost the same, if you want to pay more for a program that is harder to use then so be it. It's like the old saying "if it costs more it has to be better"? PSP is a great program and we've reviewed them both, and I'll take PSP anyday. It's shortened our workflow time by half.

Sorry but I guess I missed this in another review of one of Tamron's lenses. Would/could you explain what this means "Vibration Correction offers the same disconcertingly steady stabilization the company's other VC-equipped telephoto lenses offer"
What is disconcerting about their stabilizer? Please explain.

Thanks

Simon: I entered and now wonder is my entry was what you had in mind. In my mind it was to connect with nature? Maybe I should photographed an iphone?

We'll see, and I would suggest that anyone that doesn't want their info taken here --- simple don't enter. It's really not a big deal anymore, your info is all over the Net now anyway.

Thank you again Roger, and DPReview for posting this article. It is nice to keep up with the new options/improvements and without you we wouldn't know. Very interesting and thanks again.

I like the photos, they are not like the regular mug shots we usually get. Nice work.

Works great, no problems. This is the best imaging software you can buy, and we've tried them all. Topaz Labs plug-ins work great with it also.

Casio made some nice cameras in the early days of digital. One thing I always liked was their voice recording ability, like having a tape recorder with you at all times that would fit in your pocket. They made some nice cameras back then.

Desert Cruiser: Best article yet! I didn't realize all that was involved and now I know. Thanks, very informative article. All the years we've used D-SLR's we've never found one that was unacceptable, this explains why, we were lucky with bodies and lenses. And like you said people are too critical in many cases. With all that said, we've only found one lense (on a micro four thirds) that has an anomaly that we decided was unacceptable, to us anyway. We could never get anyone to tell us if this was the case or if we were maybe expecting too much? Please take a look at this video and tell me if this something that you'd consider as acceptable? I would love to know......

We've had other cameras with video capabilities but none that had this problem, we believe it to be in the lens, as it clicks when mildly shook off the camera like something is loose in the lens. I'd really appreciate an expert's opinion.
Thanks in advance,
Don....

Thank you, Panasonic said it was normal, and so did a couple of people here on the forum. I'm still going to use the camera but the lens is a cheap one. I really think they should have fixed it, but they didn't, so we'll have to look for another better quality lens. Thanks now I know I was correct in my assumption, thanks again for a great article.

On article Lytro Light Field Camera first look with Ren Ng (224 comments in total)

Fantastic camera for replacing the blurry ones that reside in convenience stores, warehouses, department stores. After illegal activity you could focus on the area you want to see clearly. Security camera plus ------

Barnaby: I think everyone, maybe you, has missed another aspect to your nice photo. The reflection in the second image, that you cropped, of the man leaning against the wall, only seen in the reflection! Might be more noticeable in a larger version. Nice touch, but I think most missed it. To me this image, once you see the reflection, gives it a somber look, not so much a lonely look. These people (2) are day dreaming, or in a trance, maybe reading as someone suggested. At least the man sitting. Liked the cropped version, nice explanation. Did you see the other man?

Try this using a black 1/4 inch foam board from Walmart (less than $2) for a better effect. Black usually works better.

This is confusing to me. I've always thought that things (like your right eye and right ear for example) process through the left side of your brain? Aren't they switched to the opposite side? If this is true and the right side of your brain takes care of visual things, then shouldn't you use your left eye? This could be hard to do with a viewfinder on a camera. Am I getting this all wrong?
